president biden and mitch mcconnell. there's some concern among democrats who have heard that the income threshold for tax rate increases may be going up to 400, 450, $500,000. a source familiar with the talks just phoned me to say the democrats are only considering that under a couple of conditions. one is that if the threshold goes up to that level, the top income tax rate would go all the way back up to the clinton era rate of 39.6%. not some mid point of 37% talked about a couple of weeks ago. secondly, that it would be accompanied by more revenue from the estate tax than is happening under current policy. remember, current policy is 35% tax on estates of $35 million or more. democrats are going to be insisting on somewhat more revenue than that, if not all the way up to the level in president obama's budget. finally, that an agreement would include a significant extension of unemployment benefits. remember, there are 2 million people who would lose about $300 a week if this fiscal cliff passes and there's no deal whatsoever. guys, back to you in d.c. >> all right. john harward, than

. but i need a dance partner. >> reporter: and with that, vice president biden has now emerged as a key player, playing a direct role in the effort to strike a last-minute deal. the key sticking points remain the same. the white house wants taxes to go up on those making over $250,000 a year. republicans want a higher income threshold. they want to keep the estate tax from going up. there's still no agreement on what to do about those automatic spending cuts set to go into effect on january 2nd. both sides have said the cost of failure is extremely high. >> if we're not able to reach an agreement, it will be dire. probably at least another million jobs lost, an unemployment rate over 9% and putting us back into recession. >> reporter: vice president biden and mitch mcconnell had several conversations deep into the night. and will continue those conversations this morning. the conversations were good, but time is almost out. >> the cutoff is tomorrow. we hear in your piece about the dire consequences here. most americans might not feel the effects immediately, right? >> reporter: most wo

to do with his economy and where to go with tax policy, he didn't ask biden, he asked bush and exte extended the bush tax cuts, exactly where we are today. all he wants to do is not extend them for anybody making over $250,000. if you make over 2$250,000, the first $250,000 would be taxed at the original rate. i want to talk economics. what this is to many republicans is spending cuts. not about the election. the election is over. it's about spending cuts, really what 2010 was about. i think that's where the negotiations go in the next couple of days. >> you think about the polling and how this polls and issues david was talking about and common ground and who gets blame going over the fiscal cliff, how do you see it? >> i think that's the wrong question to ask. we're not in a political season. we either need the country to function or we don't. >> we will be. in 12 months from now, we'll be right back it an again. whatever happens over the next three weeks will be part of some campaign 12 months from now. >> i would rather worry about principle than politics and the republican part
